Week 209

As you may have noticed, Alper, Simon and myself have been run­ning a tiny app project on the side. It’s called Cup­pings and it helps you find good cof­fee spots near you. This project grew out of a shared pas­sion for cof­fee and actu­al­ly start­ed out as an idea for a cof­fee tast­ing diary app […]

Notes on project AJI (part 3)

This is the third and final part of a post about AJI, a self-com­mis­­sioned research project about pub­lic protests. Read the first and sec­ond post or con­tin­ue read­ing below. The most impor­tant idea is that a protest is a per­for­mance of civic resis­tance and sol­i­dar­i­ty and as such it has a broad swath of spec­ta­tors […]

Notes on project AJI (part 2)

This is the sec­ond part of a post about AJI, a self-com­mis­­sioned research project about pub­lic protests. Read the first post or con­tin­ue read­ing below. Look­ing back on the talks we gave in the past few years, they’re obvi­ous­ly (and nat­u­ral­ly) prece­dents for what we’re doing with AJI now. I’m real­ly hap­py we’re return­ing to […]

Notes on project AJI (part 1)

Next to our work with clients, we reg­u­lar­ly ini­ti­ate research projects. Their aim is to inves­ti­gate sub­jects in the fields of soci­ety, pol­i­tics, pol­i­cy etc. that spark our inter­est. We use our research projects to con­tribute to debates in these areas by cre­at­ing playable pro­to­types. At the moment, we are work­ing on AJI. This is […]

Week 208

Last week was awe­some because Kars was in Berlin for most of the week work­ing from KANT. We have a high­ly func­tion­al way of work­ing-apart-togeth­­er set­up which pow­ers most of the studio’s work but there is a lev­el of cre­ative ener­gy that is hard to achieve over a Face­Time con­nec­tion. Besides that we also did […]

The Quantified Good Life at MLOVE ConFestival Europe 2013

A while back I ven­tured out to the MLOVE Con­Fes­ti­val at a cas­tle some­where in Sax­ony-Anhalt to join my fel­low Dutch­men Maarten den Braber and Yuri van Geest to present about the quan­ti­fied self and our per­spec­tive on data and its social con­se­quences as game design­ers. Any time you use tech­nol­o­gy to try to influ­ence […]

Week 206–207

I’m writ­ing up two weeks in one go, for no par­tic­u­lar rea­son oth­er than that I was on a short hol­i­day in Stock­holm last week even though it was my turn to do notes. For shame. (STHLM is a rec­om­mend­ed des­ti­na­tion, I should add.) Alper wrapped up project SAME togeth­er with Sebas­t­ian. They doc­u­ment­ed the […]
